      It’s in their DNA to look at screens damn good statement & 100% valid for the next generation & even for mine.

      The way teenagers, adults & even aged people spend time in front of screens just to save time & to get fast output will not store energy in their body, will it?

      Adverse effects they don't notice & if somebody guides them, they ignore it very politely waits for an inner voice to stop them, dude this is not gonna happened at all...

      Even nowadays, people support each other to use screens all the time. And genuinely saying this is fine for the era, really!!
